Putting the detention basin underground allows the top of the profile to be used for light recreation. It's also a safer installation since the area doesn't have to be fenced off from children getting into the pond and mosquitoes wont' breed in the stagnant drainage water.

Settlers Park is a large facility with an Adventure Island playground facility and lots of open space.
This gives you some idea of the character of this beautiful park owned and operated by the City of Meridian Parks and Recreation Department. The Rainstore3 site is off to the left in the distance.
Rainstore3 is located in this grass area. Look for the green inlet in the lawn in a slightly depressed area as shown in the next photo.
Rainstore3 is perfect for Idaho’s high water table.
The spot in the middle of this depressed lawn area is where the inlet is located and the Rainstore3 is beneath this area.
This is a closeup of the inlet. Perhaps some small stone placed around the inlet would be more appealing visually since there is a bit of a puddled low spot around the inlet. Be careful to let the water drain directly into the system with perhaps a concrete swale or a well drained gravel collar.
Adventure Island is Idaho's first universally accessible playground and the Rainstore3 system is located NE of this sign.
